The perfect solution doesn't have to be the most obvious, or the safest, or even the smartest. But sometimes something can be MacGuyvered together. Sometimes, imperfection is perfection.

1. It ain't stupid if it works.

I don't see any drawback here. In fact, it's better than a traditional cone for two reasons: it gives the dog a wider field of vision, and it also looks like they've busted their head through a cowboy hat.

2. How is this not more of a thing?

Reddit | Kiten_Miten

Lots of people have pickup trucks. Lots of people have tarps. You see where I'm going with this? The truck beds actually look kinda cozy, and they'd keep you high and dry.

3. Redneck limo.

Reddit | Skabaduda

This is one of those images that leaves me with more questions than answers. Does it actually drive? What does the inside look like? Also, why? Just, seriously, why?

4. A day at the lake.

Reddit | WryLanguage

They've got a motor, comfy seats, drinks on ice and shade. The only thing they're missing is any kind of safety standards. Eh, still looks fun. I'd take the risk.

5. That's how you do it.

If the humble floating picnic table umbrella doesn't float your boat, how about this option? It comes with all kinds of features, like water tanks and an extended deck, that you just don't see in most picnic tables.

6. Patent that.

Reddit | bsurfn2day

This is a legit life hack for anyone who deals with wet boots in the winter months. If you prettied this up, you could probably make a mint selling it on the Shopping Channel.

7. Stealth cookout.

The world is full of metal items you can use to create frankengrills and smokers for your next cookout. Is it economical? Of course! Does the metal contain lead? Possibly!

8. Hey, they survived.

Twitter | @AlohaNabs_

This would seem like a couple of candidates for Darwin Awards, but consider this rebuttal: they took safety precautions and they survived the encounter unscathed. Riddle me that.

9. I hope my wheelbarrow can do this.

Reddit | nvalenti27

That looks even comfier than an Adirondack chair. Unfotunately, my wheelbarrow is like 30 years old. Maybe it's time to pick up a new one. It's multi-pupose, so it would be dumb not to do it.

10. The trailer park finds a way.

Reddit | smitty195498

It might be a little unsightly from ground level, but if you're on that deck, you see a quality wooden deck that aligns perfectly with your door. It's all about perspective.

11. I think that's a bargain.

Reddit | yeerk_slayer

Most car owners have spent way more than five grand on a car at some point. With that in mind, it seems like an absolute steal for a vehicle expressly designed for nuclear winter.

12. I'll pass.

Reddit | CosmicFloppyDisk

Not to be a spoilsport or anything, but that looks super dangerous. It just doesn't seem worth it for the thrill of riding a couple of feet behind a trailer.

13. Redneck problems require redneck solutions.

Reddit | olewar

ATV trails can be treacherous, especially when it comes to creeks and rivers. If you happen to have a spare school bus lying around, it looks simple enough to create a covered bridge.

14. Can it blink?

Reddit | smitty195498

It might not be as functional as a tail light, but it looks the part...from a distance, at least. Having a busted tail light filled in with Solo cups might warrant an officer's attention.

15. Sure, I guess.

Reddit | [deleted]

I'm not sure the benefits of this contraption really justify having it in the first place. Like, your door is gone. Now you have a gate. It's still not a door.

16. Handy dandy.

Reddit | robcale3

You don't see much in the way of tattoos that are also functional mathematical devices, but here's one such example. You'd just want to make sure you were finished growing before getting it.

17. 2D car texture.

Reddit | yellowpig10

If you want people to stay off your private road, and if you're prepared to make them think they're about to t-bone a vintage car, this is absolutely the solution for you.

18. Annoying, but functional.

Reddit | [deleted]

Much like tying a tennis ball to your garage ceiling , this is another low-budget way to avoid smashing walls. If you're a bad driver, the annoyance of having a rubber chicken squawk at you might even make you a better driver.

19. Seems simple enough.

Reddit | thatsneakerdouche

You can see how drinking on the lawn in front of a fire could get boring after awhile, so why not liven it up by playing a game? You never know how it'll end!

...seriously, take it easy out there.

20. Safety first.

Reddit | Scorpionoxide

Sure, the safest thing to do would be to fix the shelf. But the second safest thing would be to slap together a stopgap solution, but make sure it's properly labelled.
